#morningthoughts

For many years when I was an adolescent, I used to create these magnificent stories... they involved real life people, but not always ones I knew, but rather ones I longed to know because - I can’t even tell you why. I can say that their lives were somehow different and I found that fascinating because when we’re born, we’re all born very similar, so I always felt that there was absolutely no reason I couldn’t do things that sounded completely insane when I spoke them. That mentality carried me through my late teens and much of my 20’s, and somehow after 30 it began to fizzle out, like someone sneakily snuffed out my proverbial candle. Guess who that sneaky person was? Me. Yes, you read right. Me. My dreams were and still are quite huge, but I stopped writing them. I stopped crafting these wild tales that managed to weave themselves into an even better reality than I ever imagined. Mostly, I wrote on paper. In those days, computers weren’t what they are today, and I think there is something extra tangible about writing on paper. It’s a lost art. All this to simply say: I started writing in my world travel journal. Because my dream is to explore the world... not simply to take a vacation, but rather to continue doing what I’ve done the past couple years - strike out on my own and really getting to know the people and cultures of different places. What does that actually look like though? And that, my friends, is where writing comes into play, so start crafting your story - it’s never too late!

I walked into the desert at night and could finally breath. This summer has been one of the most emotional times in my life. I have experienced extreme highs: I have made amazing new friends, danced from my soul, climbed, and hiked, and floated in the air on fabric. This summer has also seen extreme lows. I have cried on my office floor, couldn’t breath in traffic, sedated myself to bed for entire weekends. Looking back, I still view this as an amazing summer. In the end, those negative moments fade away. They don’t leave me, but the become distant. The memories, the positive ones, become strengthened with time. Those amazing experiences, the surreal ones, they stay with you and shape who you are. I look forward to my last month here before my season ends. I also look forward to the next time I can walk into the desert at night to seek myself. 🌵✨☀️. . . . . #wanderer   #eveninglight   #purple   #desert   #nomadlife   #nomad   #experiencelife   #experiences   #mystory   #desertrat   #hippielife   #solotraveler   #solotravel   #folkgood   #nightsky   #bluehour   #findmeaning   #wandering   #nightsky   #igtravel   #journeyoflife   #morningthoughts

Бывает же такое, перед сном, думаешь о всяком. И тут доходишь до интересной мысли, распутываешь её, как клубок. И ты такой «Оу! Хорошая мысль! Утром запишу.» Ага😑

Cider time and morning thoughts! 😊 . I’ve been participating in a business challenge all week ☑️ The challenge has been with thousands of female entrepreneurs from around the world. It’s been amazing to see all the cool things that they are working on. One of the things that has become very clear to me over the last few days has been what it takes to make success for your life. . These women have shared their challenges, worries and all the wins and it’s helped me so clearly that success is within reach for all of us. You don’t have to be a certain way to be super successful. I know I’ve been caught up in the comparison game and thinking that “they” (whoever it is at the moment!) can do it because of this reason or that reason – that they are better than me. The real thing that will set you apart though is having the courage to do what needs to be done 🌟 . Just like in other areas of life, there are plenty of people who never started the challenge, some started but won’t finish and some will sit through it and be inspired for a few days but won’t really utilize it. We aren’t even done and there are some who are out in the world putting the things we’ve learned into practice and are killing it because they tried. In a few days I’ve heard people talk about confronting some big things. They have gathered all their courage and made the asks they needed to make or sought out new opportunities. So cool 😎 . To close out a long, tough but still fabulous week – you don’t have to be special to be successful, you just have to have courage to do it. Plenty of people have started exactly where you are right now and have found their path to success and you can too. . What can you do today to move the needle in your personal life or career? . . . #personalgrowth   #personaldevelopment   #self   #selfwork   #liveyourbestlife   #goaldigger   #goafterit   #trying   #makeaplan   #makeprogress   #challenges   #success   #hersuccess   #womeninbusiness   #womenwhowork   #workmode   #whatsimportant   #fridaymotivation   #fridaythoughts   #pdxblogger   #oregonblogger   #inspired   #endofweekthoughts   #morningmotivation   #morningthoughts   #reflection

🍕 Has it ever occurred to you that everything we know now are memories? Except this very moment.. And does anyone ever really feel like they’re doing enough? Do you ever wonder if maybe you’re a better person in Gods eyes than in your own? Does anyone else put pizza in the oven before it’s preheated even though you know it’s wrong? And why is my mind running profusely. #MorningThoughts   #Anyways   HappyFriday ✨

How often do we tell ourselves "it's okay to think about it, I just shouldn't do it"? The fact is, it is not okay, not because "god is watching" or some strawman like that, but because what we think about will eventually manifest itself in our behavior. Likewise, however, good thoughts also manifest themselves in our lives after thinking about them often enough. Visualize your goals 5 years from now daily, and be very vivid and specific, and it's likely to become true. Skeptical? So was I 5 years ago, but it all worked out 100%.

I am a sweaty self tan mess, but I’m into it. Morning miles this morning we’re just what I needed😌🏃🏻‍♀️ I may not be even close to what my goal for this month is, but it felt good to get back to it! . & I think that’s the key here... keep pushing. . Too often we give up on something just bc we may not get there in the time we predicted we would. . It would have been too easy for me to look at the calendar & say, okay there no way I’m gonna finish my 35 miles this month so I’ll just start again next month. WRONG. Even if I don’t finish those 35 miles I can get super close to it. Or way closer than I am right now. . Giving up or “rescheduling” your end date for a goal over & over can be pointless & just keep you further away from achieving that goal. Just keep going for it. Keep pushing. Keep fighting.

Talk about motivation. He’s it. He keeps me honest, on my toes, mindful of my actions and reminds me whenever he’s away to take care of me. Many asked when my ex and I separated and then divorced if it was difficult being away from him—of course. But I know it’s important for him to have equal time between us both. Hell, it’s important to me. Regardless of our relationship not working, he’s his dad and a good one. No matter what, I’ll never get in between that. I know as he gets older, his schedule will change and one of us will have to sacrifice some time but I think we’re doing pretty well. I’ve learned to balance my alone time and learning to fully commit to him when he’s with me. Co-parenting can work when you take your pride out of it. #morningthoughts   #coparenting   #mommyblogger   #blackmoms   #blackmomsblog   #divorce   #divorcedmom   #lifeafterdivorce   #writersofinstagram   #empoweringwomen   #browngirlswhoblog   #blackbloggers   #mommyandson  

Our thoughts and understandings establish the foundations and boundaries for our perceived limitations (“boxes” and “ceilings”). How can the finite and temporal mind even begin to grasp limitless resources and unlimited possibilities of the Infinite and Eternal? 🤷🏾‍♂️ There is nothing that is too hard for God. Nothing. Don’t just think outside the box, forget about it, and stop leaning on your understanding...today! 🤯 “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.”...”Is anything too hard for the Lord?”...”Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” 🙏🏽❤️🤗 #1corinthians29   #genesis1814   #proverbs35   #morningthoughts   #positivity   #faith   #hope   #love   #joy   #peace   #faithfulness   #begrateful   #repentofunbelief   #believe  

Have you ever stopped at watched the leaves fall to the ground? It’s like they dance on their way down. Watching them flow in the breeze is actually quite beautiful. Stop and take a moment to watch the leaves turn and dance today. 🍂 breathe in the cool crisp air. It’s a new season.

Sometimes I get so caught up in trying to be everything that I forget to just be... #reflection   #morningthoughts   #selfawareness   #mommyquotes   #lifequotes   #queen  

Good morning!! 😃 You have greatness within you. Don’t let anybody tell you anything different. #morningthoughts   #happyfriday   #youcandothis  

Friday. Oh sweet, Friday. Thank GOODNESS you’re here. This week has been busy & chaotic. It’s felt rushed and scrambled and I can feel myself just needing to slow down. All of us. But, the show goes on. We have errands to run, classes go sign up for, and presents to buy. This weekend is filled with two birthday parties and lots of people so my introvertedextrovert self will need a quiet room by Sunday. 🤪 taking the tiniest of seconds to enjoy my coffee while it’s hot this morning and finding beauty in the chaos I’ll one day miss. ☕️ . . . #homedecorating   #farmhousechic   #modernfarmhousestyle   #farmhousecoffeetable   #magnoliamarket   #fixerupperstyle   #thisismotherhood   #unitedmotherhood   #stopdropandmom   #momentsinmotherhood   #momminainteasy   #momsohard   #interiorhome   #morningcoffeeview   #coffeetime☕️   #fridayquotes   #fridayselfie   #tgifriday   #morningthoughts   #morningscenes   #morningface   #sunflowers🌻   #coffeevibes   #morningsunshine   #anxietymanagement   #livingwithanxiety   #introvertproblems   #momliferocks   #totalchaos

💜Today I’m thankful for yoga mats that are sticky, especially first thing in the morning. 💜I’m thankful that I chose to listen to my body yesterday and just give it a break. 💜I’m thankful that I can tell myself that the world won’t stop turning if I choose to not workout one day. 💜I’m thankful that I can get up that next morning and resume my normal schedule. 💜I’m thankful that I CAN get up that next morning and actually RESUME my normal schedule. (Did you hear that???) Whatever you do, just be thankful that you can do...anything you want to.❤️ #thankful   #freestyleflow   #morningthoughts   #justmove   #peacenotperfection   #loveonyourself   #youareworthit

“Do you not fear me? declares the Lord. Do you not tremble before me? I placed the sand as the boundary for the sea, a perpetual barrier that it cannot pass; though the waves toss, they cannot prevail; though they roar, they cannot pass over it.” Jeremiah‬ ‭5:22‬ ‭ Mid-tide: I actually don’t know if there is such a thing as mid-tide (I believe is called medium-level tide) A few years ago I volunteer at a marine laboratory for a little bit. Tide levels are critical when doing experiments in the open ocean. My mentors usually had everything under control, they new when the tide would change and until what time we were supposed to be in the water. I trusted them cause I knew they were experts in the field. Often when I think about God I find that my relationship with Him seems unstable. When I go through “good seasons” is easy to forget about Him. When I go through hard seasons I remember Him and cry in agony, but then I feel remorse for being such a “seasonal daughter” being that He is an ethereal father. While I may never accomplish “perfection” in this world, every day I keep learning that I no matter how good or how bad things may get in this life, God is always in control, He knows when the tide will change and until what time we are supposed to be in the water, I trust Him because I know He is an expert in the field. Fun fact: He created the oceans! #Godasacreator   #Godasafather   #morningthoughts   #dailyquotes   #photography   #goodmorningquotes   #abidingpromise   #Godisgood  

Build your life how you envision it. Visualize it, work at it, work around the edges. Consistency is key. Nothing good will come from a brush of luck. Build that strong foundation for what ever you aspire. #goodmorning   #morningthoughts   #thesepantstootight

Trying! Loving! Being! Breathing! Asking! Worrying! Talking! Dreaming........ Whatever will be will be! ♥️ #lifequotes   #living   #morningthoughts   #livelaughlove   #momlife   #wifey   #familylife   love ♥️

Happiness is based on happenings. (I took myself on a date yesterday and Isaac was nice to me this morning) Joy comes from the great Devine. (I woke up in the middle of the night and couldn't sleep so I talked to spirit and asked it to surround me in its presence, I immediately fell back to sleep. Contentment comes from within. (In stead of dwelling on my insecurities I decided to seek out education to combat those feelings) I am at peace today. #peace   #parenting   #simplepleasures   #faith   #nomakeup   #nofilter   #balanced   #livingthedream   #morningthoughts

MORNING REFLECTION......I refuse to believe in a God that would hide things from us. That would taunt us... leave us abandoned if we refused to conform. I refuse to believe in Hell as a destination but rather as a point of view/perspective I choose to believe life is created not mandated by anyone. I choose to believe that I am equal to the love I give and that I am fed by the love I give. I am open to embracing my uniqueness in a cookie cutter world. I am open to breaking any molds that have previously been put around me. I am open to receive what I produce via my thoughts. I choose to believe that life is never ending and that the energy that is each and everyone of us continues on indefinitely. I choose to believe that we never lose our loved ones. However, when energy transitions, so must our thoughts. #Psychic   #Mediumship   #VeronicaDrake   #PsychicMediumVeronicaDrake   #Divinedowload   #God   #TheMeaningOfLife   #MorningThoughts   #ReflectiveThoughts   #LifeContinues   #LifeAfterDeath   #GodCalls   #conversationswithgod

Since they haven’t made a real life version of that Michael J. Fox “Back to the Future” car; we’re gonna’ have to let go of the “If only I could do it all over again” energy and and focus on the, “I’m about to be something great” energy. Like my mans Boogie said, “The future is not something you arrive at, it’s something you create.” #mood   #morningthoughts   #purpose   #morning   #5am  

I ran out of time to finish my point. I just wanted to say that without acknowledging your progress, how do you know when you can move up a notch? It’s important to note your advances so that you can push yourself further and obtain success on a new level. That applies to any area in which we want to advance. #morningthoughts  

morningthoughts Life is not always fair, that’s why is important to be true to yourself and know your worth. Don’t let anybody make you think you’re less than what you are.✌🏼 • 📸: @clayre._

Those of you that went to Watford Grammar School for Girls (WGGS) will remember the classic motto of “I can do it and I will do it”. What a great motto to teach school kids: you can do anything if you believe you can do it. How many of us don’t have that belief though? Somewhere along the way the belief you have as a child (where you think you can jump off a wall and fly 😂) disappears, and is replaced by self-doubt. I can do it becomes I CAN’T do it because....[insert any excuse you can think of]. What’s the actual reason though? My guess would be fear: fear of failure being the top one! What that really means is that you can’t do it because you don’t BELIEVE you can do it. But actually you can. Whatever it is, you CAN do it. Start telling yourself that! It may be starting a new job, teaching your first yoga class (😳), or even pushing through a new training regime, just trust yourself, believe in yourself and go out there and smash it!! That feeling once you do is 👍🏽 🕉🧘🏽‍♀️🙏🏽 “The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease forever to be able to do it.” – J.M.

Uneori, zilele au parfum de prea plin, aglomerate fiind de activități și gânduri. Cum nu putem îmbrăca o zi în culoarea altei zile mai liniștite, o acceptăm așa cum este și ne bucurăm de tot ceea ce avem de întâmpinat. Alergăm și facem tot ceea ce avem de făcut, după care ne refugiem într-o carte și o ceașcă fierbinte de cafea, care să ne încălzească sufletele. 🍂😻🥀 O zi plină de frumos, răbdare și senin vă doresc tuturor! ☕🧡📚🍪 #crampeiedesuflet   #morningpost   #moments   #morningmotivation   #mornigvibes🌅   #morningthoughts   #coffeetime☕   #friday   #newday   #autumn🍁  

Мир воспринимает нас иначе. И это тоже мы. . Вчера с коллегой-другом обсуждали, как часто отличается наш собственный взгляд на себя и восприятие нашей личности окружающими. Порой мы пытаемся произвести одно впечатление, и получается что-то другое. . Например, когда-то я была удивлена, что некоторые коллеги и знакомые считали меня высокомерной и поэтому старались меньше общаться. Я же считала себя розовым и пушистым единорогом, «рубахой-парнем» и сладкой Дюймовочкой в одном лице. . Непринуждённые сессии «давай обменяемся мнением друг о друге» мне показались весьма полезны и любопытными. И в таких беседах вы также можете быть полезны своему партнёру, рассказав, как раньше видели его, как ваше мнение эволюционировало. Мне кажется, это можно даже в качестве игры проводить во время дружеских посиделок. . #morningthoughts   #goodmorning   #sea   #red   #мысливслух  

Guten morgen ihr Lieben ☀️ ich habe jetzt gleich einen sehr wichtigen Termin. Auf diesen Termin habe ich monatelang hingearbeitet. Die Entscheidungen die dort getroffen werden, beeinflussen das Leben von meiner Tochter und mir sehr. Ich glaube an positive Gedanken und Energie. Glaube kann meines Erachtens Berge versetzen.
